2-Week Course

Following the tradition of Francis Whitaker, students will have the opportunity to focus on fine ornamental iron work for a personal, predesigned project. In addition to working on individual projects, students will share and learn from the techniques used in their fellow classmate’s work. Students must be able to perform a dropped-tongs forge weld, make upset square corners, and freehand scrolls. Predesigned projects must be submitted to instructors before class begins. Please note: there are no classes during the weekend between sessions. Although housing is available, students are responsible for their own meals from Saturday supper through Sunday lunch.
